Same power, different optic

A major advantage of the SSL technology is the “directional” nature of the light source.  This provides the ability to control and contour light in ways not possible with conventional lighting technologies.  Light can be spread wide for uniformity or contained for showcasing.  Output patterns can be round, square, or rectangular and can be utilized to provide a semi-custom solution to standard installations. 

Same power, different optic 

Far left, a narrower optic is used to highlight the automobiles (as in a showroom). 

Near left, the wider optic provides a more uniform lighting level for an area such as a parking garage.

Both examples are using the same amount of power with a different beam angle.  Cireon optics come in numerous round, square, and rectangular output patterns.
